The weekend has become a symbol of relaxation, which is good; rest, which is godly; but also rebellion against GOD. It represents a choice. Will this freedom from work and daily routine be a time to honor GOD? Or will I slide back into the cesspools of the world and be caught in its trap? Of course, if we spend every single day of every single week giving GOD Glory, Praise and Honor, then we won’t have to ‘find something to fill in our spare time on weekends’.
GOD’S people have always been a minority--a small minority--so following the crowd is usually the opposite of following JESUS. This little minority will be salt to the earth, a light to the world, and leaven to the loaf, according to JESUS. Just as one bad apple will spoil the barrel according to the old tale, so one godly person will have an enormous impact according to Scripture.
In this Truth lies our choice.
Dear FATHER GOD, Please allow that my weekends, and my every day, be lived to YOUR Glory and Honor. May YOU grant me YOUR Strength & Might that I can stand against the devil’s wiles. Thank YOU, LORD, for all of the many Blessings YOU so generously pour out amongst each one of us every second of every day. I Praise YOU! I Worship YOU!! I Pray to YOU, in The Mighty Name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth. Amen.
